This conversation will focus on the new Metro Heights apartments and the Parks & People Foundation headquarters in the Greater Mondawmin neighborhood of West Baltimore. Centrally located adjacent to the Mondawmin Mall, a major transit hub, Druid Hill Park, and the Maryland Zoo, it is a struggling but stable community that was roiled by civil unrest in 2015. We’ll discuss the factors that will impact this neighborhood’s future and explore a range of questions including: How has the neighborhood’s history impacted new development? What is the relationship between public and private open space? Will new development in this area impact the perception or reality of safety issues? How will each project impact future resurgence of the neighborhood?
